#5 Plans for a singles push for Omos nixed in WWE

It is no secret that WWE sees a big money maker in Omos.The Giant is a former RAW tag team champion and is still partnered with AJ Styles. It had been reported that one of the reasons Braun Strowman was released by WWE was because they felt Omos would be able to replace him.

But as per WrestleVotes, WWE wanted to pull the trigger on an Omos singles push during the draft. But some higher-ups in WWE, including a top RAW superstar, got the idea nixed as they believed Omos wasn’t ready for a push yet


WWE had seriously considered breaking the pairing of AJ Styles & Omos during draft. To the point where that was the plan. Until people of power (including a main RAW talent) spoke up & expressed thoughts on how Omos isn’t quite ready for singles yet. And they actually listened.

The identity of the RAW talent wasn’t revealed. Even though Omos has improved tremendously since his debut, he is not at the level where he can have a quality match as a singles superstar.
